The 18th Annual Evening of Roses
Seton Hall > News & Events 

BrundibarOn Tuesday, April 12, 2011 at 7 p.m., the Sister Rose Thering Fund for Education in Jewish-Christian Studies will present an original staging of "Brundibar" at its 18th Annual Evening of Roses.

"Brundibar" is a children's opera originally performed by child inmates of Theresienstadt, the "model community" established by Hitler during World War II to show the world how well he was treating the prisoners in the death camps. The opera, written by a Jewish Czech composer Hans Krasa in 1938, was performed more than fifty times by children and musicians from the ghetto. Is it a simple story about friendship and good winning over evil and overcoming bullies, themes that survive time.

The Evening of Roses is the major fund raising event sponsored by the Sister Rose Thering Fund. It will commemorate not only the 18th year of the fund, (the "Chai" year of life) but also the 5th anniversary (Yahrzeit) of Sister Rose's passing in 2006.

Tickets will be available shortly by contacting or at the SOPAC box office.
